THE AREA

If you are not familiar with Charleston or this area, you can see we are slightly north of the College of Charleston on historic St. Philip Street. This glamourous apartment is the ideal base to enjoy an enchanting Charleston experience. Charleston is like Rome, Italy in that most of the notable monuments and historic details are found in a fairly contained area. You can literally walk from the apartment to the southernmost extremes of the Historic District in under thirty mins.. Passing antebellum homes and cobblestone streets, this journey will take you through the Historic King Street District and the neighborhoods of Cannonborough, Elliottborough, Radcliffborough, Harleston Village and finally South of Broad until you reach the Battery itself. Go east one block and you are on King Street, the home of designer stores, eclectic stores, antique stores and a host of other fascinating stores as well as nationally acclaimed eateries. Upper King is the new center of Charleston's distinguished restaurant and nighttime life. A fresh survey of the "essential 18 Charleston Eateries" has multiple of these eateries (Hominy Grille, The Grocery, The Macintosh, The Ordinary) within four blocks of the apartment. We also appreciate to walk to Five Loaves Cafe, Stella's Greek Restaurant, Goulette Rotisserie, Sugar Bakery and the Charleston Farmers Market at Marion Square. The South Carolina Aquarium and the Childrens's Museum of the Low Country are close and a delight for both children and parents. The Charleston Museum, one of the nation's first museums, is also within walking distance. We are excited to offer this cute space on Vacation Rental By Owner.

If you visiting in Charleston and need to sleep from 2 to 72 people...in award winning historic units...one block from King St. and .4 miles to Calhoun St...attractively remodeled with striking decor and parking, St Philip Square is your answer!

You need to look carefully to realize our units are noticeably closer to South of Broad, and our buildings are substantial historic buildings, with beauty and character not possible in new construction, in a community setting where groups can gather, in an area where it's possible to rent without the owner present, in units that sparkle with gorgeous remodel and beautiful decor. We have a unique offering for wedding groups, family get-togethers, work retreats, friends traveling together, honeymooners, anniversary celebrants or families with children.

St Philip Square offers 8 units within a "square" that opens onto a shared parking area. Each apartment is a separate unit with unique characteristics. It is the ideal opportunity for groups of all sizes to organize a joint rental but each apartment is separate and is its own place. The vrbo numbers for the other units are:
1531369 1446527. 1994546. 1994547 1994550
1351757. 1662029. 834186. 567555. 467877
1994548 1994549
(You might have to put ha at the end. Or vr.)
If you put these numbers into a Vacation Rental By Owner search without dates you will be able to view each listing.


INSURANCE

We advise during the month of September particularly, and some into October, that you buy the trip protection insurance. It is the peak of hurricane season in our area. The optional trip insurance offered through Vacation Rental By Owner would cover any weather related cancellation. We do not offer refunds or date changes for any reason outdoor the 60 day cancellation period.

How to Save Money on Your Rental

  • Search for the tourism bureau in the area you wish to travel. Many tourism bureaus offer tourism guides with deals for lodging, dining and activities. These guides can provide a good start to your rental search.
  • Are you willing to change your trip week? The off-peak seasons can offer phenomenal rates on weekly rentals.
  • Plenty of vacation rental companies and owners offer savings for active duty and veteran men and women of the US Military, or returning guests of the same rental home. Be sure to ask property management company to see if your vacationing crew is eligible for a discount.
  • Some vacation rentals are basically catered to specific guests, whether it's soundside units with pier passes, city-center homes with walkable access to night life or waterfront homes that have their own kiteboarding launching areas. You'll get the best value from a rental which most thoroughly suits your ideal vacation setting, even if it costs a tad bit more.
  • Consider investing in trip insurance together with your leasing contract. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base vacation rental price, offers vacationers reimbursement of their vacation expenses for any nights missed due to personal medical related emergencies or storms, and additionally ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned hotel stay or additional gasoline.

General Vacation Rental Tricks & Tips

You may be surprised to find out how many vacation homes are available at your destination. Rental homes are gaining in popularity among vacationers, and visitors will find that the sheer number of rentals available makes it possible to find an optimum retreat to fit their Charleston area family, from calm condominiums to giant event homes with several bedrooms.

Vacation rentals are frequently owner operated or managed by property management companies. For property owners not directly involved with the management of their property, management companies are instrumental in helping vacationers with reserving, check-in, house cleaning, as well as routine service problems that may arise.

We have developed a short guide to assist you in getting most out of your rental home experience.

Finding and reserving the perfect rental:

Before you book "(8A)Historic Charm + Modern Luxury + Parking + Porches + walk one block to King Street", examine our short collection of issues to consider.

Search Early and Frequently

Charleston area rentals start booking early. To ensure the very best choice of properties, we advise searching and booking your Charleston area vacation home 6-Twelve months before your travel dates, whenever you can. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years are excellent times to find and book your vacation rental..

Choose a Community and Time

Agreement can be tough between relatives, but as soon as this tricky part is complete everything will begin to drop in place.

Just How Many Bedrooms?

Take a head count. How many beds and bedrooms will you be needing? Bear in mind that many rental homes advertise maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the living area. You will need to figure out what is suitable for your group. Generally vacation home listings will summarize each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

What Are You Willing to Pay?

Many rental homes are marketed with a cost range. Confirm the rate for your selected stay. It might be at the top end of the range. Ensure that you get cost-sharing commitments from family and friends prior to reserving a costly vacation property. Most rental contracts require a single individual to be responsible for the full reservation.

Let's Talk Amenities

What home features is the family trying to find? Is a screened porch a necessity? Do you wish to be away from it all, or near a city setting? Does the home have bikes and beach toys available during your stay? Make a list of "needs and preferences" from your company to help filter your search to the most suitable home.

Accessibility and Special Circumstances

In some cases the senior generation has challenges with stairs. If wheel chair entry, elevators, pool lifts or other special equipment is required, factor that into your search. The majority of rental postings will include a list of amenities.

Have You Considered 4-Legged Family Members?

Make sure to include your furry family members. Animal friends are welcome at many vacation homes, but policies can vary. A number of constraints may possibly dismiss a prospective vacation property. Make certain to read descriptions and contracts carefully. Extra fees or deposits may be applied to your agreement. If in doubt, ask the property owner and get it in writing.

Start your Search

Several websites exist to match vacationers with rental owners.. In combination with Homeaway, VRBO and Tripadvisor, we suggest searching Google for "Charleston area local vacation homes" for local vacation rental management companies. Local rental management companies take pride in a superior rental experience.

Negotiate

When you've found your dream rental, check to confirm your trip dates are available.

Some rental owners will negotiate prices, and some won't. If they are hesitant to budge on a highly-desirable trip, try getting an extra night. Your easiest prospects for a reduced rate is switching to an off-season week.

Study the Agreement

You will have to know which services are included:

  • Electric bills
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Long Distance Phone Service
  • Hot Tub Heating
  • Pay Per View Movies
  • Daily Cleaning (If Available)
  • Trash Pickup (and which day?)
  • Maintenance (get a phone number)
  • Check in & Check Out Key Exchange
  • Parking Fees

In addition to the normal price, visitors have to pay local taxes when booking "(8A)Historic Charm + Modern Luxury + Parking + Porches + walk one block to King Street", as well as any other fees that may be required depending on their situation, including a pet fee, earlier check-in or later check-out fee, or a pool heater fee for private pool usage during the autumn or spring months.

If you must Cancel

Cancellation policies vary for each rental. Vacation rental management companies and individual home owners often offer their guests the option to buy trip insurance. Trip insurance defends the renter against emergencies and weather events, It gives you peace of mind should tragedy strike.

Book your Vacation Property

After you feel you've identified "the one", start the booking process. Bear in mind that most rental contracts will require a considerable rental deposit and/or security deposit to safeguard the vacation home owner.

Where to Get Assistance

Put the rental manager's contact information into your smartphone and wallet for easy access to answers throughout your trip.

Congratulations! All that is left is enjoying your vacation!

During your Stay

  • Take pictures at your arrival. Take notes of any problems as soon as you arrive. We also recommend immediately calling the property manager with a report of any damage, along with your request for any fixes. This will protect against conflicts during checkout.
  • Ask questions. If there is any ambiguity about parking, policies of the property, condo access, pool operation, etc... we advise you ask the property manager promptly. A phone call can save several hours of hassle.
  • Please be considerate of the neighborhood. Residents are likely to be as friendly to you as you are respectful of them. Respecting late-night quiet hours and vehicle parking regulations can make a stay a good deal more pleasurable.
  • Ask a local. Locals may point you in the right direction.
  • Be sure to protect the property owner (and your stuff!) by keeping the vacation home locked up when you are away, exactly like you would at home.

Leaving Paradise

  • Make sure you've packed all your belongings. Sweep all the rooms in the home for left-behind possessions. Check bath rooms, the garage, cabinets, decks, the swimming pool area, and anywhere else your personal property might "hide".
  • When everything is out, begin a walk-through of the rental to make sure no property damage occurred in the course of your stay. Whenever you can, do this walk-out review with the property owner present. If the property owner is not available, make certain you take photos of the property to record its condition.
  • How would you rate your experience? Many rental home management companies and rental websites make it easy for travellers to give feedback. If the rental and/or property manager was outstanding, they will appreciate your positive reviews. If anything went wrong, we recommend being kind but straightforward regarding your experience. The best owners and managers will try very hard to solve the issue.

Iterate

Hold a vacation recap meeting with the people in your group. Does everybody want to go back? Hopefully this guide helped you find a fantastic rental unit. Maybe the property wasn't perfect, and you will better recognize how to refine your search for the next vacation.
